    Smile Just bought one of these . . .

    Quite a thick manual and learning curve. So now, between this and my
    new kamado joe grill, have my hands full and constantly challenged and
    questioned by the sergeant about buying.



    Anyone have experience?

    Ultra 6 Qt - Instant Pot
    Not a thing, but it looks like it is a great all in one item for the kitchen. Might be great for a bachelor like me.

    I have, mom used them to good and great foods, I love pressure cookers~I've the kind you heat on the stove~love them~the rest of the family isn't much impressed```

    Foods that take a great amount of time are handled pretty fast in a cooker~beans take so much less time``` Meat dishes~where you might like the meat to be cooked to melt in your mouth~can be taken there with out hours of simmering```

    I've never cooked dried beans in a pressure cooker. They foam easy, and I worry about the foam stopping up the vent.

    Put the beans in a regular pot. fill with the normal amount of water. bring to a boil for 2 minutes. then remove from heat and let set until cool. drain the water. Then you can add them to your pressure cooker without worrying about the foam. I bought my mom one of these last year and she LOVES it!.
    Progressivism is not progressive. Oppression is ended and equality is achieved not by advancing anyone but by retarding the achievements of some.

    Social justice is punitive, not restorative. No one is restored under a progressive system, but people are often punished in order to guarantee equal outcome.

    A wise man can learn more from a foolish answer than a fool can learn from a wise answer.

    @Beachcomber, a progress report on the Instant Pot? This thread inspired me to get out my old pressure cooker, and I am now doing all my cooking in it -- dried peas and beans, sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, soups, beef, chicken, eggs, corn, green beans, eggplant, carrots, rice, butternut squash, peanuts. In my opinion, rice, butternut squash, carrots, and chicken are better when pressure cooked.
